  •  Because she's actually a good leader (1+ / 0-)

    "Impeachment off the table" notwithstanding.  She came within an ace of stopping the Iraq war before it started, and she wasn't even minority leader then.  

    She knows how to get things done, and she rarely if ever sucks up to Republicans or acts like she needs their approval for existing.

    That's why people ran away from her.  Competence is frightening.

    I don't know that I trust NP, but I respect her.

    •  Fair enough. Sen. Byrd sure tried to stop that war (0+ / 0-)

      I get little satisfaction that my other senator has buyers remorse. Maybe one of the worst chairs of Senate Intel evah. NOW he says he should have listened to Big Daddy.

        I miss him, though his condition was such that I guess death maybe was a blessing at that point.

        He and Kennedy gone within a year.  The heart and the soul of the Senate.

          Voting from your desk. Listening to another Senator's floor speech. Coming to the floor to make your own objections.
